I purchased the Martha Stewart Scoring Board and couldn't be happier with it. There are three items - a scoring tool which resembles a bone folder but with a sharper edge that can be used as a cutter with a little extra force. Be careful not to press too hard when scoring paper or you will cut it!
There is an envelope guide which I have not used yet but it looks cool. And also the board itself. The board is clearly numbered in 1/4 inch increments and scoring is a breeze. I even scored some laminated paper with good results. The board can also be used to edge up a ruler for marking straight lines and measuring on paper etc. A pleasant surprise for me.
I say "Buy this board!!!"
I never thought that I would need this until I wanted to make a tri fold card and tried to do it on my personal cutter using the scoring blade that it came with and thumbs down!
Then I started looking into getting a scoring board and I saw this but thought maybe it was too much. I looked around and was about to purchase another cheaper version and my computer crashed. The next day I googled scoring boards and came to a ladies blog who compared scoring boards and rated this one the one to get. So I got it and I love all the extras packed into it!
This is an AWESOME scoring board. I had purchased a different one that is difficult to use-I guess I can't figure out the instructions to use it! So I purchased this one and it is much easier to use--no confusing directions to mess with your head!
I'm thinking of getting another one, so I won't have to take it from one room to the next--or for a spare in case something happens to the first!
I did not have a paper trimmer, but this is the next best thing. With a slowly growing stash, I used this board to rely on exact measurements for paper sizes. It comes with a bone folder (big plus) and is also intended to help make envelopes - awesome! It is very sturdy and practical - a must have for new art enthusiasts!
